Apple holding 'special event' on Sept. 5

Based on the invitation, it appears that new iPods will be on tap in San Francisco during an Apple event.

"The beat goes on" on September 5 in San Francisco, where Apple will hold a "special event" presumably to introduce new iPods.

As usual, Apple avoided directly stating what's on tap, but the use of the Cover Flow album artwork and Apple's latest iPod ads rather heavily suggests that we're in store for an iPod/iTunes-related event. Ars Technica reported last week that Apple was planning an event for the 5th, and several reports have surfaced in recent weeks implying that Apple's about to refresh its iPod lineup.

CNET will be there in force, so stay tuned for further news. The event starts at 10 a.m. on the 5th at San Francisco's Moscone Center, home to Macworld and the Worldwide Developers' Conference.

It appears that it's time for new iPods, according to Apple's latest 'special event' invitation. Apple
